I visited Ueno Park early on a Sunday morning. For the first couple of tranquil hours it was hard to believe I was in the heart of one of the world's busiest cities. Things became more hectic later, but with the added bonus of a drum-pulsing parade of folk in traditional dress carrying portable Shinto shrines. The park is right... More

Super, super crowded and touristy! I went on a Monday in April during cherry blossom season around noon, lots of people were having picnics of food they brought from the nearby marts. I had a beer and snacks purchased from Family Mart which is right by the subway station. It's nice sitting under the cherry blossom trees, but it's so... More

The park is really near from Ueno Station. I went there during last day of hanami festival. It was very crowd and dirty. Really hard to taking a picture with cherry blossom background. But still a nice place if you want to see cherry blossom

Beautiful park to walk around in Spring. Especially beautiful during Cherry Blossom season. There is a zoo right in the park makes it super easy to see 2 places at the the same time. Super clean and just a great place to relax and stroll.

When we had enquired of the driver of the coach carrying us from Narita airport about the best sites to view cherry blossoms in Tokyo one of the two places ( both with free entry) he mentioned was Ueno park. I am not sure if there is something like a Ueno Park. After exiting the station we walked towards the... More

A lot of people, but that didn't take away from the beauty of the park and cherry blossoms. Stroll through the park to find food, shrines, and scenery!

Yes there were several Cherry Blossom trees but only one color -off white. It was crowded with locals having picnics on the sides and hundreds of trash cans all over which spoilt the area.

Really Beautiful but Super Huge Park, you can easily get lost, there are lots of trees and if you are here for the Cherry Blossom season its just beautiful scenery. Lots of Museums, Halls, Shrines, it even has a zoo.

Wow. I got my fill of cherry blossoms here. Many different kinds of cherry trees. Good for taking pictures. The downsides for me were that it was very crowded and that it may not be so easy to navigate for people with movility problems due to all the stairs. However it is a free attraction and good picture taking panoramas.

Nice gardens, located at Ueno train station. Worth a walk through, although the highlight destination for us was the National Museum.

Staying in Ueno, Asakusa

Neighbourhood Profile
Ueno, Asakusa
Traces of the history and culture of the Edo (old Tokyo) era remain vividly in Ueno and Asakusa. Spacious Ueno Park is a great place to relax and visit a variety of different museums and galleries. At Ameyoko which starts in front of Ueno station, the grocery stores and clothing shops are crammed alongside fishmongers. It gets particularly busy at the end of the year, when many people go on shopping sprees. The town of Asakusa, developed around Sensoji temple, has many shops selling goods and clothing from old Japan, making it a great place for souvenir hunting. It's also known for various annual festivals, and the whole district gets involved with the huge Sanja Festival in May.
